The Brilliance: In a world where hate is the language of the day, racial tension runs high, violence is a means to an end and shootings are a common occurrence, it’s easy to give in to despair. Yet, in the midstof New York City, one of the country’s most diverse and socially involved cities, lies a musicalcollective creating art that’s counter cultural. With their second full-length project in partnershipwith Integrity Music, David Gungor and John Arndt—otherwise known as The Brilliance—are suggesting that perhaps All Is Not Lost.

The two men have shared a brotherly bond since childhood when their fathers played in awedding band together in the ’70s. Throughout college, they made music together in a variety ofbands. When David began leading worship at Trinity Grace Church’s Tribeca Parish in NewYork City, he wanted to write original music for his congregation that followed the liturgicalcalendar, so he sent some ideas to Arndt, and a unique musical journey began as the two, alongwith an ensemble of musician friends, began recording under the moniker of The Brilliance.Inspired by neoclassical music, their sound is built on piano and string arrangements and rarelyfollows traditional pop form.
Their critically-acclaimed Integrity Music debut, Brother, was a peacemaking opus thatintroduced the duo’s eloquent use of minimalism in the vein of Sufjan Stevens and Philip Glassto an audience beyond their faithful legion of fans who followed them during their years as anindependent band. The title track became an important anthem of unity, breaking down barriersbetween race, religion and socioeconomic status. Moreover, Worship Leader magazine namedBrother their No. 1 album pick in 2015.
Now, with All Is Not Lost, The Brilliance hopes to continue the conversations they sparked with

Brother, inviting listeners farther along on a journey toward peace.
